Service Memories: Elwyn Jones

Newtown Fire Station recently visited 93-year-old retired firefighter, Elwyn Jones, at his care home.

On Tuesday, May 30th, the on-call crew from Newtown Fire Station paid Elwyn Jones a visit, following his request to see a fire truck again. The crew took two of their fire trucks and had the opportunity to meet and chat with Elwyn, his family and carers. Having spent over 20 years working as a firefighter, Elwyn had plenty of stories to tell the crew on his experience.

Elwyn joined the Denbighshire and Montgomeryshire Joint Fire Service at the former Newtown Station in 1948 at 18 years old.

Elwyn is seen in the bottom right photograph, taken in 1952, on the far left in the front row.
